Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote and encourage technical, scientific, and artistic skills through individual projects, social collaboration, and education.


Ideaworks is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, public benefit organization. Our vision is to become the driving force of inspiration in our community by providing Maker Spaces to the Central Valley. We are dedicated to bringing innovation by providing our community with the resources to develop new skills:

  • through a unique hands-on teaching method of different disciplines through machine and tool usage.
  • by fostering collaboration.
  • by providing educational components that empower our community to develop entrepreneurial skills.
We are a volunteer-run makerspace in the Central Valley of California. We offer classes to the public in woodworking, welding, and ceramics, and add additional classes as instructors become available. Membership is available (discounts to seniors, military, fulltime students) where the shop provides tools and shared knowledge in woodworking, wood turning on lathes, wheel throwing and hand building clay, 3D printing (filament and resin), laser cutters/engravers, wood cnc, metal machining and lathing, bike repair and maintenance, textiles with sewing and serger machines, welding in gas, tig, mig, and stick, and will soon have a forging/casting area, leather shop, stained glass, and jewelry (casting, silversmith, beading).
